My friend grows the most amazing cantaloupes. After pigging out on most of one I decided to search for a great drink recipe using this sweet fruit. I found this drink from the Seattle-Post Intelligencer. Make sure you use only the sweetest cantaloupe you can find.

This was interesting! A bit too sweet and strong and could use more lemon. A nice way to cool off on a hot summer day! Thanks.
